Last update 3 December 2023

Additional information is always gratefully received, whether entirely new records (particularly historical records) or information to fill in gaps or correct errors, via the contact link under the Miscellaneous entry in the navigation bar above. Thank you.

Mileages are given in the form miles.chains unless stated otherwise. Figures prefixed with ≈ are approximate, those in parentheses are not on this route but are given for reference. Reference to 'start'/'end' of an asset are as read down the page.

   8.16	later end of line
   8.71	MOSS BANK
   9.55	CRANK
  10.36	Mill Lane siding

Note that there were apparently two Rookery stations, the second approximately 0.50 north of the first.  These figures clash with Old Mill Lane and Rainford Village, depending on which site has the known mileage
